Empowering the Community: Tuks FM’s World Radio Day Initiative

Tuks FM, the campus radio station at the University of Pretoria (UP), commemorated World Radio Day on February 13, 2024. Established by UNESCO in 2011, World Radio Day aims to raise public awareness about the significance of radio broadcasting.

In alignment with the ethos of this global observance, Tuks FM distributed radios to visually impaired residents of the Nazareth Retirement Village in Pretoria. This gesture symbolized the important role of radio in connecting individuals across generations.

Station manager, Lwazi Mpofu emphasized that Tuks FM’s participation in World Radio Day reflects the station dedication to community service and development. Sister Sikholiwe, the Sister Superior at Nazareth House, echoed this sentiment, underlining the importance of such contributions in providing ongoing support for their residents.

Lundi Cavernelis, Tuks FM’s programming manager, remarked, “Radio has
remained a trusted companion across generations, and we are privileged to express our appreciation for radio by distributing these portable radios to the senior citizens of Nazareth House on World Radio Day, celebrating a century of South African Radio and 43 years of Tuks FM 107.2.”

Tuks FM remains committed to its mission of serving the community of Pretoria and looks forward to continuing its efforts in the future.
